Christmas Jackpot!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas this year.  I certainly did.  On Black Friday, my sister was over and did some shopping online.  After seeing a ton of sales online for various quilt shops, I suggested several ideas for myself for Christmas at various stores.  My "list" this year in terms of quilting stuff involved filling a bunch of baskets at various online stores, handing the computer to my sister, who was in cahoots with my mom, and her completing a bunch of Christmas shopping for me that day.
Solids were the first theme of Christmas.  I got a Moda Bella Solids color card, a Michael Miller jewel toned fat quarter bundle and another fat quarter bundle of the new Kona solids.

Speaking of fat quarter bundles, I got a subscription to the Fat Quarter Shop's Blogger's Choice fat quarter club from my parents.

I got some great notions as well.  This travel pincushion on the left has a cover, which will come in handy when traveling.  I'm excited to get more of the Clover binder clips.  I had a 10 pack, but will definitely put this larger case to good use.

And I got a fat quarter bundle and coordinating Aurifil thread of Simply Color, one of my favorite fabric lines right now.

I also got some great Tula Pink - Birds and the Bees (14 one yard cuts!) from KK and Tula Pink's book from another aunt.

I'd say it was a pretty good Christmas!  Now to find the time to begin digging into all of these goodies! 


  1. That is a good Christmas:-) So many fun things... I can't wait to see what you do with it!!!

  2. Nice haul! I love to see what people get for Christmas - especially quilters!

  3. Looks like you scored! Have fun with all of your goodies!

  4. What a wonderful family you have that they would support your creative efforts with these gifts. If you are interested in Bella solids check out the prices on Thousands of Bolts, I always get mine there. They don't even know I exist, just wanted to pass on one online shop that has very good prices.

  5. Awesome collection of fabrics and notions. You must be over the moon.
